QC Man to Face Homicide Charge in Death of 23-Year Old
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) _ A Davenport man has been charged with vehicular
homicide, eight months after a crash that killed a 23-year-old man.
The Quad-City Times reports that 44-year-old Dale Lee
Varner was arrested Thursday night. He is being held at the Scott County Jail.
A Scott County grand jury this week charged Varner with two felonies _ homicide
by vehicle and voluntary manslaughter. The grand jury also handed down an
aggravated misdemeanor charge of involuntary manslaughter against Varner.
Police say Martin Eason, of Davenport, was walking on a road in September when
he was hit by a car driven by Varner.
